TT Electronics will lead the design, production and delivery of two primary power assemblies for Boxer vehicles over the next 10 years, as part of the UK MoD’s Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme.

These products will enable efficient power management of the battery control unit and provide signalling and communications functionality for the command display units featured on every Boxer vehicle.

TT Electronics will recruit a team of six specialists for the peak of production, including a dedicated programme manager. The company will also recruit a further two apprentices to grow its early careers community.

TT Electronics will invest in specialist test equipment to optimise process efficiency and deliver service excellence. The company will also be making an investment in a custom factory layout to drive world-class delivery for the entirety of the programme.

Ben Sutton, Vice President and General Manager at TT Electronics (Power Solutions), said: “We are immensely proud to have secured our spot within the MIV supply chain. Supporting our Armed Forces with innovative, differentiated solutions is something we’re extremely passionate about. Playing our role in modernising their capability is exactly the type of challenge that we thrive on.

"This award concludes months of hard work by our dedicated Abercynon and Cardiff teams and helps us further cement our long-standing partnership with RBSL and RLS. We’re now looking ahead to the next steps and eager to ensure we support this programme with the best service, value and products available.”

The MIV programme aims to support and enhance the UK supply chain. As such, RBSL and RLS are part of a MIV Joint Procurement Team, which has engaged suppliers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This contract is the latest in a series of supplier contracts for the MIV programme.
